Trivia
Several of the names and occupations of the monks in the series are actually from a record book from the Abbey of St. Peter and St. Paul in Shrewsbury, England. Some of these include Cadfael, Robert, Jerome, and Heribut.

Cadfael's name is normally pronounced "cad - fie - el". In the Welsh language, an "f'"is pronounced as a "v". The correct pronunciation of his name is "cad - vay - el"

Brother Oswin, the novice and Cadfael's apprentice, has a much larger role in the television series than in the books. In the books he does not appear until the middle of the series. He largely takes the place of Brother Mark, who left the Abbey to run the leper house at St. Giles. Mark can be seen in "The Leper of St. Giles". In "The Virgin in The Ice" Brother Elyas was the brother accused of the rape and murder of Sister Hilaria, not Oswin.
